Looney Leads The Charge (In Dealing with GUNS In Our Community) & Gangbanger Call-In

Looney Leads The Charge  (Dealing with GUNS in our Community)

“We need to shine a light on better mental health care for younger children,” Looney said.
Each of the three working groups—mental health, gun violence and school security—are working against a Feb. 15 deadline to recommend legislation to the overall task force they are part of. At that point, Looney will be key in ushering bills through the Senate as a whole.

Gangbanger Call-In 11
"Local cops work with state and federal investigators and prosecutors, as well as local ministers and community leaders and criminal-justice academics, as part of the project. They’ve identified the two dozen or so neighborhood-based gangs or groups of troublemakers believed to be carrying out the bulk of tit-for-tat shootings in New Haven. Then they’ve ordered group leaders on parole or probation to attend the call-ins. There, the young men are presented with a choice: Stop shooting, and get help if you want. Or keep shooting, and we will lock up not just you, but all your boys on every offense we can pin on them. One bullet, everybody pays."

"It Takes A Village" and "Evil Thrive When People of Goodwill Turn A Blind Eye and Do nothing." This is another great use of the Aldermanic Chambers - Evidence of multiple use of tax-payer dollars. This is Civic Engagement. The community should not cede the streets or its housing projects to the gangs. It would be helpful to find out what parents, political and community leaders can do to deter young people from joining gangs. What is missing in their lives why they turn to violence? Thanks to the NHI for this article.

“Part of the Fabric of the City”: A Small Business Stays the Course in Detroit

Lowe’s $55 million commitment to LISC’s small business relief and recovery efforts is funding grants that will touch the lives of some 2,750 entrepreneurs. Rodney Haynes, a Detroit native who has dedicated his working life to being part of the city’s revival, is one of them.

LISC, with Top Housing Groups, Calls for Emergency Rental Relief

In a statement issued today, LISC joins with Enterprise, National Housing Trust, Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future, Housing Partnership Network, Housing Assistance Council and Leading Age to urge federal action on rental assistance that will protect residents and affordable housing providers affected by the pandemic. “Relief is overdue,” the groups warn, “and we can’t afford to wait any longer.”

American Banker Reports on LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund

A recent article in American Banker describes the why and how of LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund - a means to direct private capital to Black banks, CDFIs and other minority businesses. The $50 million from Netflix and Costco seeding the fund, with more in the pipeline, is a signal of a widespread “social-consciousness awakening that [the wealth gap] is a problem and its sources are systemic racism,” explains George Ashton, LISC EVP and the fund’s manager, in the story.
